    based on 1 rating

    In the account of Christ’s advent in John 1:19-37, we see a 1) Joyful Preparation (John 1:19-28), a 2) Joyful Arrival (John 1:29-34) and a resulting 3) Joyful Response (John 1:35-37).

    If you're the type of person who counts down the days until your local radio station starts playing nonstop Christmas music, you might want to brace yourself for some bad news. Apparently listening to Christmas music on loop could have some negative effects on your mental health, according to more

    Contributed by Gordon Mcculloch on Dec 16, 2017
    based on 1 rating

    Another John the Baptist sermon, but I really did not understand the man until now. Can we ever emulate and sustain his devotion to Jesus?

    This sermon was delivered to Holy Trinity in Ayr, Ayrshire, Scotland on the 17th December 2017 (a Scottish Episcopal Church in the Dioceses of Glasgow and Dumfries). Isaiah 61:1-4, 8-11 1 Thessalonians 5:16-24 John 1:6-8,19-28 Psalm 19:14: Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of our more

  • The Witness Of John The Baptist

    Contributed by Geoffrey Foot on Dec 12, 2017
    based on 1 rating

    John the Baptist pre-figured and prepared the way for the ministry of Jesus but the religious authorities of the day could not understand what John was doing in his preaching and especially in baptising Jewish people when there was no need to do so.

    THE WITNESS OF JOHN (John 1:19-28) In this 1st chapter of John’s gospel he begins his message, his good news to demonstrate that Jesus is the Mind, the Reason, the Word of God come into this world in the form of a human being. Having set down this central thought, John now begins to tell the more

  • The Forerunner To The Messiah Series

    Contributed by T.j. Conwell on May 15, 2016
    based on 1 rating

    John gives us three important lessons from his testimony: 1. We are not the focus of the witness; 2. We are not the light of the world; and, 3. We proclaim (for others) our own belief in Jesus. Before we can ever grow, we must realize these first!

    The Forerunner to the Messiah John 1:14-28 Introduction - The gospel of John screams of the faith that we should have in Christ -- It is the clearest example of living life FOR the one who redeemed you and I - If we can learn to love like Jesus’, we can bring others to Him -- Re: We more

    based on 1 rating

    This is part one of a series of messages in the Gospel of John.

    INTRODUCTION: John’s gospel is different from the others. There is no genealogy, no manger scene, no boyhood, no temptation, no Mount of transfiguration, and no Gethsemane. There are only a few special miracles chosen by John as “signs.” We have the famous “I AM” sayings of Jesus and many more

  • In Christ Alone: "A Credible Witness"

    Contributed by Reverend Cooper Mcwhirter on Sep 26, 2016

    When a witness has no bias or ulterior motive and is truthful, then he can be considered a 'credible witness'.

  • John’s Ministry Begins Series

    Contributed by John Lowe on Jun 20, 2017
    based on 1 rating

    John the Baptist steps out on the stage of history. He is a New Testament personality, but I classify him as an Old Testament prophet, because of his character and his message.

    -AD 7-8- Judean Wilderness John’s Ministry Begins (Malachi 3:1) Matthew 3:1, Mark 1:1-4, Luke 3:1-2, John 1:19-28 God planned the ministry of John the Baptist. We know this because we find him in prophecy. Malachi 3:1 says of him, “See, I will send my messenger, who will prepare the way before more

  • Thoughts For The Third Sunday Of Advent Series

    based on 1 rating

    I and you need to ask who Our Lord is in relationship to ourselves, and who we are in relationship to Him.

    Third Sunday of Advent 2016 In nomine Patris, . . . “Who are you?” “Just who do you think you are?” “Who in the world???” All of these questions strike at the fundamental awareness of our personal existence. All of these questions merit an answer, because what more

    based on 1 rating

    How should we prepare for the birthday of King Jesus? John the Baptist calls us to repentance, to preparing the way for him into our lives and making straight a highway into our hearts.

    [Sermon preached on 17 December 2017, 3rd Sunday in Advent / 3rd year, ELCF Lectionary] Every year again I am surprised how much time and energy goes into preparing for Christmas. So many things to do… and in the end so few things that really matter. The famous American author John Grisham wrote more
